There are many freight forwarders that offer container and air cargo shipping services from China to Cameroon, but more possibilities with us. It’s vital to work with one who understands your needs and always carries out the best tailored shipping solution from China to Cameroon.

Sea freight from China to Cameroon

Sea freight is always the first choice when people ship goods from China to Cameroon.
Sea freight is the mode of transport in which goods are shipped by sea, mostly with container ships, sometimes with bulk cargo ships or RO-RO ships, tankers, etc. And it’s economically and environmentally superior to other modes of shipping, especially over long distance, for goods in bulk or equipment of large size. Over 90% of the world’s total cargo traffic is carried out by sea freight. 
Shipping by sea allows you to move your cargo from China to Cameroon at the minimum cost possible, but you’ll accept the long transit time across the ocean. One more advantage, with sea freight, we are capable of transporting almost any type of goods, even those classified as dangerous goods. 

Sea freight, shipping from China to Cameroon by seaFCL (Full container load): shipping a container filled with goods exclusively for a client. From China to Cameroon we offer FCL service with 20ft/40ft container (20GP, 40GP and 40HQ). FCL is more cost efficient.
LCL (Less than container load): If your cargo can’t fill an entire container, our consolidation (LCL shipping) service from China to Cameroon is available, i.e. sharing a container with other clients who have cargo to the same destination, at the same time. Naturally, due to extra work (consolidation, de-consolidation, warehousing, paperwork, etc.), the final cost on each unit is higher than FCL, and shipping takes longer. LCL is a good choice for small business to start with. 

Apart from regular FCL and LCL shipments, we offer below sea freight services from China to Cameroon as complement.
Flat rack and open top containers: for OOG (out-of-gauge) cargo, oversized & heavy cargo shipping.
Reefer containers: for temperature-sensitive products
Breakbulk: for large and bulk shipment
RO-RO: for vehicles and wheeled cargo
